Easter Mini File Folder Gum Holder Tutorial

As you know I love to make 3d items and this week’s project is a little gift I’m making for my daughter’s friends at college. When I saw the new Sour Patch gum from Stride on a recent trip to town I just knew I had to come up with something.

Stride Gum for Easter Mini File Folder Gum Holder (1)

Screams Daffodil Delight, right? And I immediately saw that it would coordinate with our Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog and of course, I’ve been itching to do more stamping with the cute little Eggstra Spectacular stamp set too!

So here is what I came up with –

Stride Gum for Easter Mini File Folder Gum Holder (2)

Wonder where I got the Scallop Oval? I’ll show you how I made this in my video – you won’t believe how simple it is!

And I’ve got two Video Tutorials to share with you today!

Not one, but two you may ask? Why?

Well, I ended up doing a fun technique with the image and thought you’d like to see how it was done too. And since my internet is a little funky out here in the sticks, shorter videos are a bit easier to upload for me when it’s windy. (Don’t ask – crazy I know!)  I figure streaming is easier for you too – right? Less buffering, etc. LOL

Do you like shorter videos or would you prefer to see just one longer video? Leave me a comment and let me know what you prefer. I always love to hear feedback from you – it also helps me know if someone is out there in cyber land listening – lol!

Watch the Easter Mini File Folder Gum Holder Video Tutorial firsts to see how you make and assemble the treat holder itself.

Then watch my Two Tone Embossing Technique Video to see how the focal point is created with our fun colors of Stampin’ Emboss Powder!
